Rigatoni with spicy sausage, sweet mini peppers, & broccoli

I’m not a huge sausage fan (there’s a joke in there somewhere) but this dish really surprised me because I liked it so much!!

Bet ya missed me, huh? I was off being a lazy blogger and eating some boring blog unworthy meals.

I am definitely on a pasta kick. This takes about 20-30 minutes to make, is healthy, is extremely flavorful due to the pungent garlic and sharp parmigiano cheese. And it uses De Cecco pasta!

Pesto Genovese

And I’m back! I realized tonight as I was writing this post that it’s been a week since I last posted. Where does the time go?? Life seems to get in the way and unfortunately the blog is the first thing that gets neglected (well really it’s the gym). On a happy note–it’s my birthday […]

Spaghetti with grilled baby artichokes

Yes, I realize that I am putting two spaghetti recipes back to back but I like pasta! What can I say?? I would eat it 4 or 5 times a week if I could and then you’d probably see me on the next season of The Biggest Loser. Ugh. Why does it have to have […]
